WEEZER, BLONDIE, TV ON THE RADIO, PASSION PIT, THE BUZZCOCKS, RUN THE JEWELS, THE BOTH (AIMEE MANN and TED LEO), AGAINST ME! top the lineup at this year's second annual PROJECT PABST at PORTLAND'S ZIDELL YARDS, JULY 19th and 20th. The event is a co-production of the PABST BREWING COMPANY and concert promoter FIREFLY.
ZIDELL YARDS will host the festival's two stages on its 10 acres in the heart of the SOUTH WATERFRONT DISTRICT.
Now an annual gathering, this year's lineup will solidify PROJECT PABST as the premier festival in the region, with unmatched creative programming.
Tickets went on sale today at 11a (PST) via projectpabst.com. Fans must be over 21 to attend. The late-night show component of the festival will take place JULY 17th and 18th with the full late-night lineup and venue information coming soon. One dollar from every ticket will go to help the JEREMY WILSON FOUNDATION, dedicated to providing financial assistance in times of medical crisis and to improving the overall well-being of individual musicians and their families.
"We were pleasantly blown away by the way PROJECT PABST was embraced by not just the city of PORTLAND, but by our loyal PBR consumers and music fans across the country," says PABST BREWING COMPANY' CMO DAN McHUGH. "We are excited for year two of PROJECT PABST. From the very beginning, we wanted it to be more than just a music festival; we wanted it to be a PBR experience. We look forward to sharing that with even more people this year."
The PABST BREWING COMPANY and SUPERFLY have combined forces to create the ultimate, multi-faceted festival experience. SUPERFLY's history of designing groundbreaking properties such as BONNAROO and OUTSIDE LANDS fit in perfectly with PABST's vision as the largest AMERICAN-owned brewer established in 1844.
"We are so excited to build upon last year's tremendous success," said SUPERFLY Co-founder RICHARD GOODSTONE. "The team put together an amazing line up and will have lots of surprises for year two."
Local acts will also be featured prominently as the festival will represent PORTLAND's vibrant cultural community in its concessions, featuring foods from local eateries.
